Letchworth Squash

With two squash courts, Letchworth Sports and Tennis Club aims to raise the profile of squash in the area by encouraging new players to take up the game, existing players to play more frequently and lapsed players to return to the game.

Return to Squash - Changes due to Covid-19

Updated - Tuesday 1st December

We are glad to be reopening our squash courts from Wednesday 2nd December and look forward to welcoming you back to the club.

Due to Hertfordshire being placed under the Government's tier 2 restrictions, we must now operate under stricter conditions of play than before we closed.  To read the full guidance please refer to www.englandsquash.com/back-to-squash/guidance.

In short, the main difference is that players from different households must now return to playing 'sides'.  However, unlike back in August, this is now only permitted within your squash bubble of up to six people. We will assume squash bubbles remain the same as before lockdown, please send any alterations to lstcsquash@gmail.com and remember to leave 7 days in-between changing bubbles.

Socially distanced practice is also allowed within the bubbles, please refer to the above website for some ideas in this regard. As per prior to lockdown, solo practice is permitted, as is full court squash within households or support bubbles.   Coaching may resume on a 1-1 adult basis only, as this evolves we will update you.

Please ensure you continue to follow the safety guidelines within the court block regarding track and trace, social distancing, sanitising your hands upon entry and exit, avoiding wiping hands on the court walls and cleaning door handles and any touch points during and after your game.

Thank you for adhering to the guidance, keeping each other safe and enabling the club to open in a covid secure way. We will monitor updates from England Squash for changes and hopefully we can return to full squash in the not too distant future.

Stay safe and well, we look forward to seeing you soon.
